this. restart. marshall friday. many of you nestle listing. so i'm very, very proud that tax papers are here, as i said, where they belong. now to return to his question, actually, initially i had a very negative approach. it did not start out very well. when jack retired he came back. he brought home with them about 20 boxes of the biggest mess you ever saw. jack was not just organized. he was opposed to this organization. anyway, i started out to help him sort the papers. and so i have bought all these file boxes. about folders and everything. the pick of the paper and sick and the way you think this one goes? the atlanta constitution or the marvin griffin administration. he was sick and give me that and start reading it. he read every piece of paper. he could not part with a single one. after today's idea of. okay. it's all yours. the second reason i had a negative impression was that they brought silver fish into the house. [laughter] so after he died in that a side that, you know, his memoir needed to be completed. it was a wonderful read. an important book. i knew that meant a
in rome, the mills in south georgia, state payroll padding, embezzlement of tax funds, confects for private work, nepotism from purchasing schemes such as the state board of leaks with no water. [laughter] on i could go on. many of these expos ase took place during the griffin administration which president carter can attest notoriously corrupt. they had never stolen so much. but ronald griffin was kind of day for giving sort of croak. quite a few years later she and jack and other reporters were drinking and marvin griffin said to jack you know how use to think every time i would see him walking into a press conference was a notebook, and jack said what? he said i used to think with that beady eye son of a bitch has on me today. [laughter] she used to pursue the story for the "l.a. times," and he was always -- i think we have to watch our time here so i just going to end by saying how happy i am that this book is published because she had such a wonderful career in washington it tended to overshadow this earlier phase of his career in the south, and this book although it ends h
they pay any fines we establish. pay their taxes which is a critical part of this whole comprehensive approach. give them a chance to earn their way into citizenship learning english and the basics about america's history. and making sure that the amount of illegal immigrants -- amount of legal immigration that is allowed in the united states is based on the state of our economy. we are going to enshrine in here the principle when it comes to job openings americans get the first grab at it and the first opportunity and that's the way it should be. we're going to make certain beyond that there are opportunities for others and there are a variety of different ways we approach it. let me close by addressing one issue that is near and deer. it's been 12 years, 12 years since i introduced the dream act. i never gave up because when you meet these young people you can't give up. but there were some disappointing times and sad times. the last time around i met with these young people and i told them i'm never giving up on you, don't give up on us. that's what this is about. the dream act is
taxes or accusations that the doctor gave improper benefited to senator. just minutes ago, senator menendez acknowledged that he did indeed travel on the doctor's plane, but says they were legal, and again, staffers say that the trips were legal. on the website, the daily caller, back in november, it published an interview with hookers in the dominican republic, saying that menendez paid them for sex at the mansion. and the senator denies those claims. pleaded guilty of give $20,000 in donations. he claims that he gave that money to charity. with us now, it looks like a lot of things are part-timing up on bob. guest: it looks like things are piling up on the senator, it is illegal to travel to another country, to have sex with someone under the age of 18, even if the sexual encounter there is lawful. prostitution is lawful in the dominican republic, but not with children under the age of 16. and so age here is very important. and as you pointed out, shep, the senator denies that he patronized prostitutes without getting into the issue of their age. and the other thing is, he travel
.o.p. for economy while pushing higher taxes. what planet do these guys live on, shepard? >> shepard: economists seem to have a number of reasons if not an explanation for this. >> they also don't seem to be worried. in part, because most private spending categories like housing actually did better in the fourth quarter than they did in the third. nigel got of global insight says you get a better picture of the economy looking at the period from july through december. >> third quarter 3.1% that overstated the strength of the recovery. fourth quarter minus .1 that understates. average the two. we are around 1.5%. so i think that's the underlying pace we were showing in the second half of the year it's a recovery but it's soft. gault expects positive growth this year and not a recession. shepard? >> shepard: wendell goler at the white house tonight. thanks. the search is on for two missing workers after a landslide at a quarry. that tops our news around the world in 80 seconds. >> canada. rocks and mud gave way sweeping two construction trucks and pay loader into a deep gravel pit north of montrea
. it is just symbolism over substance. i have a hard time telling my constituents in taxes that congress is looking at passing a raft of new laws when the laws we currently have on the books are so woefully not enforced. i think we need to do what we can to address the shortcomings in mental health care, as well as background checks mechanisms we used to screen out prohibited gun buyers. we need to ask what the years of the institutionalization of the mentally ill have done for the safety of the american public. we need to ask about people who are subjected to a court order to outpatient mental health treatment. tens of millions are falling to the cracks and surely, we can agree that more needs to be done to and from -- enforce existing gun laws. the gun prosecutions are down across the board. mr. chairman, i hope we will have a follow-up hearing to ask administration witnesses to come before the panel and testify why agencies of government are not enforcing laws that congress has already passed. it is worth noting that five years ago, congress was asking the same questions we are asking
